Red Bull adds 14-year-old F4 charger to junior roster


Red Bull has recruited 14-year-old American hopeful Jak Crawford for its junior programme which will be led by Juri Vips and Yuki Tsunoda.

Crawford appeared on Red Bull's radar after an impressive maiden campaign in the NACAM Formula 4 series in 2019 which the ambitious teenage charger finished second overall after clinching six wins and 14 podiums.

This year, thanks to Red Bull, the American will hone his skills in the German and Italian F4 championships, racing with the front-running Van Amersfoort team.

Crawford will be joined on the F4 grid by fellow Red Bull junior, British young gun Jonny Edgar.

Further up the ladder, Red Bull's leading juniors in 2020 will be Juri Vips, who heads to Japan for a season of Super Formula, and former fellow FIA F3 racer Yuki Tsunoda who steps up to F2.

Red Bull's junior roster will also include 17-year-old Kiwi Liam Lawson who will remain in F3 this year, young Aussie Jack Doohan and Norwegian hopeful Dennis Hauger, both of which will join Lawson in F3.
